Lexis Suites Penang @ Bayan Lepas
Still remember I blogged about my pleasant stay at Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson last year? So when we decided to fly back to KL, Lexis Suites Penang definitely an ideal option for its location near airport at Bayan Lepas which is a mere 10 minutes’ drive from Penang International Airport
Lexis Suites Penang is five-star resort with 222 luxury suites nestled along the idyllic seaside of Teluk Kumbar. Being one of the properties under the Lexis Hotel Group, Lexis Suites Penang also offers the luxury of having a private pool and steam room in the room.
I love spaciousness of the lobby echoed by high ceiling and modern design. There are ample of comfortable sofas for the guests as well.
The inviting interior is accentuated by the play on the neon lighting and the huge artistic chandeliers.
With a 968 sq ft of space, our Premium Pool Suite is cleverly sectioned into two long areas of the sleeping area and bathroom. Aesthetically pleasing, the suite’s earthy and warm tones with colourful contrasting wall and pillows exude a coziness that welcomed us warmly.
Furnished with two king beds covered in pristine white sheets and brighten up with colorful pillows and bed runners embroidered with Lexis logo. The floor-to-ceiling glass windows allowing natural light penetrate into the room and overlooking the patio for that spacious, airy feeling.
The LED TV is brilliantly camouflaged into the sleek wall panel. It disappears in the dark glass mirror when switched off and appears like when it is being switched on.
The usual coffee and tea making facilities as we as the mini bar.
Executive desk with all its necessary work elements such as electrical power points, hotel stationary and brochures of information. Complimentary WiFi is provided too.
I glanced in awe when I saw the expansive marble-clad bathroom. I’m glad to find that the space is sectioned into 3 areas, the vanity area, bathroom and toilet. Everyone can occupy an area without disturbing each other. The bathroom design was perhaps one of my favourite among the hotels I have stayed so far.
Spotted the signature hibiscus set in tile. ^__^
One end of the bathroom is filled with a beautiful bathtub, rainforest shower and hand shower head.
While the other end is the clean and well kept toilet.
Our bathroom is appointed with a ‘His and Her’ sinks with large mirror where I can clutter up my facial stuffs and hubby can get his own corner.
Toiletries and hair dryer are provided and the hallway of the bathroom has a large cabinet that holds a safe deposit box, iron and board, laundry services amenities, a weighing scale and slippers. Beside the cabinet, there is a large space for luggage.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, the seaside property is the only resort in the island that boasts the luxury and convenience of a private dip pool and steam room in every suite.
Having water play session without worrying about the weather is most concerned by Sam because it was drizzling since we reached the hotel.
We get to enjoy uninterrupted vistas of the Straits of Malacca as well as the seashore from the patio.
There is also a private steam room by the dip pool for maximum indulgence and it was perfect for Sam after her swimming session.
For those who prefer bigger pool, there is a swimming pool located on level 8. Floats in cute shape such as swan and unicorn are for rent too.
Lexis Suite Penang definitely can categorized as a kid’s/family’s friendly hotel because there’s plenty of indoor activities available here.
Most of the facilities are located on level 8.
The colour and well equipped Kidz World, no entrance fee is charged.
There are also other family oriented activities such chess, Jenga, Carrom and therre’s even Mahjong table for rental (RM50 per day)! ^__*
Table soccer & pool game.
The resort also has a range of meeting spaces and banquet ballrooms. Check out HERE.

Verdict: From the previous memorably stay at Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson, our stay here at Lexis Suites Penang was equally pleasant. There are so many things I love about my Premium Pool Suite, from the private pool to the spaciousness of the room. However there are misses too as the hotel is not located within the city centre, which is need about 30 minutes drive to Georgetown. The nearest mall would be Queensbay mall and it need about 10 to 15 mins ride from the hotel. There was an ongoing constructions along the way during our stay so do expect some horrendous traffic during peak hours.
